  1. Desktop messed up on startup


    Hello,I've been having an issue with my desktop icons arrangement for a while. Normally, I never use a predefined sorting method such as by name, size, item type... and custom sort the desktop icons myself. It used to work normally: I sort the icons, and they stay where they are when I restart the computer. But for quite a while now, the icons automatically re-arrange themselves in no particular order whenever I restart, and there's nothing I can do about that.Here is my custom-sorted desktop:Here is the desktop when I restart "Auto-arrange icons" turned on:Here is the desktop again when I r

    CHKDSK messed up

    Continue with zbook's excellent instructions.

    But if you want to try and get into the BIOS again just to check:
    From your product's website:
    Opening the Startup Menu during system startup on computers

    Follow these steps to open the Startup menu when the computer is powered off.

    1. Turn on the computer.
    2. Immediately press the Escape key repeatedly, about once every second, until the Startup Menu opens.

    You should get this option:

    Win 2016 word automatically launch on Windows 10 startup

    I have tried these two options below but they did not work.Any Ideas----------------- Steps to disable startup programs in Windows 10:
    NOT IN START UP FOLDER


    1. Step 1: Click the lower-left Start button, type msconfig in the blank search box and choose msconfig to open System Configuration.
    2. Step 2: Select Startup and tap Open Task Manager.
    3. Step 3: Click a startup item and tap the bottom-right Disable button.
    I have done this in reverse and it does not work—meaning I took out word short cut

    First, create a shortcut of the Document and place it on (say, Desktop).

    Then, go to the following location:

    Your Drive:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Drop your Shortcut into the Startup folder. However, when you cold boot your computer, your Desktop will first show up and then a few seconds later the Doc should appear.
